Getting ready to change out my clutch and am wondering if I really need this tool (EBC model)? Its only $19.23 Shipped, but dont want to waste time and money if I don't have to.

I have pulled all my steel and friction plates without any special tools. Are you pulling out the basket too or just replacing the plates?

Just replacing the plates. I didn't think I needed to remove basket.

Doing it now. Not finished. So far I got to the last spacer and friction plate, that I CAN"T GET OUT! Unable to grab with finger nails or clothes hanger to get to pry around (underneath) to get it out).

Any suggestions?

Did you take out the metal O-ring first that holds them in? They will not come out until that is removed. I used a metal coat hangar to pull all mine out.

Yes the metal O-ring is out. All the friction plates and spacers came out except the inner most 37 of (last of each) #7 of clutch plate and # 8 of friction plate. Tried using a pick, but just cant get it. How did you do it with a clothes hanger? From the inner teeth of the spacers, or grabbing the upper end of the friction plates?
